I’ve been browsing online for months to look for the best – but cheapest way to learn calligraphy, since I’ve been into writing and drawing ever since I was a kid.
After browsing different IG’s and Fb’s for months, I learned that a calligraphy workshop would cost me around Php2,000 – 5,000 for just a few hours of session. And the longest time I saw for that rate is at 3 hours maximum already. It’s too much for someone like me, since I’m also currently taking up MBA and love to be on the road every once in awhile. I don’t think it’s worth the money to spend that much for just 2-3 hours. I am not even sure how far I can learn from a 2-3 hours session.
So when I came across the IG account of kaligrafimnl
, I was so overjoyed! Imagine! for just Php 1,500 – you can already have a 5 Hours calligraphy session + snacks (milk tea and yummy bread) + your own calligraphy starter kit (1 ink, nib cleaner, 2 nibs & 1 penholder, take home drills, and basic guide to calligraphy). I still can’t believe my luck in bumping into this account.
So finally! I had my calligraphy workshop last Saturday (Dec12) @ QTea Padre Faura, Manila. Our time was supposed to be 1pm-6pm, but we had to start a few minutes late because some of the attendees got lost along the way (felt really bad for them). Good thing I’m quite familiar with the place already, since I had one of my OJT at one of the travel agency along Padre Faura, during college days.
So anyway, here’s a glimpse of our Calligraphy Workshop experience with none other than Ana Marie Orcullo 🙂

Sorry for the mess… please bear with me *wink-wink*
And on our last part, we also tried using watercolor instead of Ink. Awesome!
And here’s a glimpse of what our take home drills looks like 🙂
So if you love to learn calligraphy just like me, it’s probably time to do something about it 🙂
